More bad election news: The Washington Times: Democrats will look again at the legislation mandating 698 miles of fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border and might seek to scrap the plan altogether when they take control of Congress next year.
Rep. Bennie Thompson, Mississippi Democrat, told reporters this week that he expected to "revisit" the issue when he becomes chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee in the 110th Congress.
Mr. Thompson said the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) new border enforcement program, known as the Secure Border Initiative or SBI Net -- which includes monitors, cameras and other integrated surveillance systems -- is a viable alternative to fencing.
"We might do away with it, or look at [integrating it into] SBI Net," he said. "A virtual fence rather than a real one."
A "virtual fence" will assure access across our borders to "virtually" anyone and provide the politicians with more opportunity to waste taxpayer dollars and idulge in graft and kickbacks. William Jefferson will need a deep freeze to hold his ill-gotten gains and "Honest" Harry Reid may soon have more money than Las Vegas and Reno combined.
Why bother with a fence at all when it is obvious we are going to have amnesty for everyone and the only people who will be punished are the loyal American citizens? How long before we grant dual citizenship to every country in the Western Hemisphere and finish driving this great nation into the thirld world cesspool.
Keep watching the donks you elected, the show is about to begin!
